Sushi
Sushi Roku combines the finest, freshest fish from pristine waters around the globe with the kind of artistry that can only be provided by a mature sushi chef ensuring superlative traditional sushi, together with a splash of California innovation. Sushi Roku is a pioneer of contemporary sushi, incorporating diverse, non-traditional ingredients from Latin America (e.g. jalapeños) and Europe (e.g. olive oil) into its edible works of art. This unique culinary experience that bridges past and present is the result of an eagerness to embrace new ideas and a profound respect for tradition. Sushi Roku’s bold and diverse menu also offers an array of hot and cold specialty appetizers and an extensive selection of exotic entrées.

Service was good. Food was good. The only feedback I can offer is the server should Pre bus tables removing soiled plates. We couldn’t throughly enjoy was we were competing for space on the table with empty glasses and plates.

I will return. Food was fast and service was friendly. But at a restaurant like this you would expect a little more.

Always enjoy the food and ambiance at the Newport Beach location. The filet and salmon entrees are always delicious! Highly recommend! Just wish they would bring the lunch bento box style lunches back! They were wonderful!

The sushi platter at Sushi Roku was very disappointing. The fish was bland - nice plates but dull sushi. There was no discernible flavoring beyond the basic fish and rice. I had hoped for something more creative since this is an upscale restaurant. Loved the seaweed salad and miso soup. The service and ambiance were good, but for sushi I will go elsewhere.

Had a reservation for 7:30, from a week before, didn’t get seated till maybe 20 minutes later. Had asked for a nice table in my reservation and arguably got put in one of the worst tables. Server was very kind, polite, and knowledgeable (A+). Food and drinks was delicious, however my appetizer never came. Had finished my food and then 10-15 minutes after my appetizer comes. Overall I really wanted to have a good experience after hearing from others but it just wasn’t it for me

There were some very loud people at a table nearby last time we were there. We came a few times because of the location, but neither the food/drinks nor the service (or ambiance) is noteworthy (or worth the price)!

I’d rather not say how I truly feel because afterwards everybody will want to go there and I won’t be able to get a table. So I’m not going to say I think this is the best sushi place in the world, and that the food and ambiance and staff are amazing. Why would I do that to myself?
Maga!

LOVE, love, love Sushi Roku in Newport Beach. The Manager, Chris Han & his Team ALWAYS make certain both family & business occasions are memorable. The menu items are varied & always fresh & delicious BUT, I suggest you allow your sushi chef to surprise you.

Overall the sushi is mediocre. Most of the rolls and sashimi slices were served very warm. The rice can be warm but the actual fish itself appeared to have not been freshly pulled from a refrigerated environment. There’s something about warm sushi that doesn’t sit well with my mouth. Overall the previous reviews critiquing the sushi are spot on. Liquor store sushi is its closest competitor.

Go to Delsushi at UCI.

They don’t have a vegetarian or vegan menu like they used to, so there aren’t any tofu or veg rolls items listed. You have to ask.

Big huge waste of time and money. The food was like overpriced Pei Wei; sushi mediocre, sashimi average, rolls dry. The $49 ribeye might as well have been from Pavillions. Waiter was inattentive. We had two tweens with us, among many other forgotten promises never returned with forks so they could even eat. We didn’t have wine and only ordered a total of 3 cocktails yet our bill before gratuity was $340!! We had a few leftovers but hardly over ordered. We will never go back.

Took a really long time to get a waiter to come by our table. Food quality is mediocre and over priced. Tuna used on sushi is not sashimi grade, chicken is dry as paper.
